I WILL FIND YOU by Tolu’ Akinyemi

Tolu’ Akinyemi also known as ‘Poetolu’ is an Architect, Writer, Entrepreneur, and a passionate Creativist.

My shoes have lost their floors
And my eyes riot from looking
But till I find you, I will
Worry many more maps,
Scourge many more miles
And dissect a thousand more smiles.

I will find you.

It might take a day perhaps another decade
But I will find you.
Dusk and sweat may bake my skin
But I will find you.
Hunger and thirst may tear my bones
But I will find you.

Just be waiting for me.
